Canadian Regional
« on: February 18, 2020, 09:39:30 AM »
PAWSitive Dog Sports Association was pleased to host the Canadian Regional this past weekend in Cold Lake, Alberta, Canada.  We had an awesome group and a fun time.  Judge Murrelet Halterman, Onyx, CA brought a great attitude and some fun, but technical courses (We gave her some Canadian mitts and a Toque on Friday night, so she had no issues with the -29C/-21F outside Saturday morning.) The always smiling Liane Bitinsky was our Cheif Course Builder.

This was the first Regional to be remotely scored by Chris and the NADAC office from.....(not a clue), but it went without a hitch. He quickly responded to questions from exhibitors and trial staff.

Congratulations to all the participants, and those who excelled at the trial! The club did an amazing job of decorating the arena, putting on an excellent banquet, and making this a special event.

Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of the fun!
